Perinatal Care for You and Your Baby throughout Your Pregnancy

Specializing in Advanced Comprehensive Perinatal Care

Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates (Previously known as John Muir Perinatal Medical Group) is the preeminent perinatal group in the east bay. Founded in 2006 by Dr. Jeff Traynor and joined later that same year by Dr. Rosa Won, Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates has built a reputation of quality, personalized care and attention to detail that has garnered a loyal referral base from surrounding obstetricians and praise from previous patients. Our staff of specialty trained sonographers, experienced medical assistants, caring counselors and friendly administrative assistants supports our physicians in providing the highest level of personalized perinatal care possible. Unlike other "perinatal" groups in the east bay - our physicians are subspecialty trained and board certified in Maternal Fetal Medicine. Before you trust your pregnancy to a "perinatal" group, check to see if their physicians are board certified by visiting the American Board of Medical Specialties (www.abms.org) and click on the tab "Is Your Doctor Certified?". A board certified perinatologist will be board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Maternal Fetal Medicine.  If you are referred to a physician who is only board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology - they are not a board certified Perinatologist. Just as you should not have plastic surgery by someone who is not a board certified plastic surgeon - do not trust your pregnancy to someone who is not board certified in Maternal Fetal Medicine.

As a 41 year old Mom-to-be carrying twins, my pregnancy was considered high risk and I was sent to Dr. Traynor because of his expertise as a maternal - fetal specialist. During my 20th week it was discovered that one of the babies had a dangerously slow heart rate. Because of the excellent care and support of Dr. Traynor, both boys were delivered near full term and are thriving today. Dr. Traynor and his staff were truly amazing and I highly recommend his practice.
